Purpose: “The Russell Sage Foundation’s program on Race, Ethnicity & Immigration supports innovative investigator-initiated research on the social, economic, and political effects of the changing racial and ethnic composition of the U.S. population, including the transformation of communities and ideas about what it means to be American. We are especially interested in research that examines the roles of race, ethnicity, nativity, gender and legal status in outcomes for immigrants, U.S.-born racial and ethnic minorities, and native-born whites.  RSF encourages multi-disciplinary perspectives and methods that both strengthen the data, theory, and methods of social science research and foster a better understanding of how to foster the ideals of a pluralist society. Proposals may focus on any one or more of the issues—race, and/or ethnicity, and/or immigration.”

Amount: Trustee Grants are generally capped at $200,000
